Abstract

We develop a dynamic forest sector in a Computable General Equilibrium model. There has been an increasing demand in using general equilibrium models to examine forests' role in climate change mitigation, global land competition and the energy sector. But modeling forestry sector in a general equilibrium context remains an extremely difficult task due to the complex dynamics in forestry management and timer markets. The innovation of this study lies in introducing a land-based and dynamic forest sector and incorporating rational expectations in all the sectors.
